Gandi.net was one of the first ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) accredited domain registrars that was authorized to provide registration of .COM, .NET,.ORG, .BIZ, .INFO, .NAME, .BE, .FR, .EU domain in France. The company now offers approximately 81 domain TLDs for registration and continues to add to this list regularly. Gandi.net is owned and operated by GANDI SAS, which was founded in 1999 by three well-known internet professionals in France.
In 2005, the company was bought by an experienced European company and was transformed into a product and services provider based around domain registration and management.
